October 19th Prayer by Susan Jane Pritchard

Father,

Thank you for the beauty of your GRAND CREATION.   We see your handiwork ALL AROUND US.   It is a magnificent reminder of your awe inspiring design. It shows us in real time your plan that plays out in front of our eyes.  It is a reminder that everything is under your watch and control...just like us.

The scriptures tell us that you are always with us and calling us to fill our minds with your truth.  In the joy of life and in the sufferings and darkness.

You are the one constant.  Paul shows us by his words and example that there is a great purpose for our struggles in this world.  That purpose is to focus every cell of our body, brain and heart on THE ONE who has SAVED US...OUR COMFORTER.

It is in the suffering that we are able to discover TRUTH.  "So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."

So WE’RE NOT GIVING UP or letting the burdens and hardships of this life distract or discourage us.  We will keep our eyes firmly fixed on what God has promised at the end of this journey...HEAVEN ITSELF.

Amen and Amen
